  • Trump’s Losing Trade Gambit: The president had to back off new tariffs on Mexico and Canada

    President Trump’s practice of staking out extreme positions on trade as a negotiating tactic is a sign of his brilliance. Or so we’re told. But that theory took on water last week, when Mr. Trump had to backtrack on a promise to hit Mexico and Canada with a 25% tariff on steel and a 10% tariff on aluminum, without any concessions from either Mexico City or Ottawa. To understand the change of heart, take the list of products slated for a new Trump tariff on steel and total the value of those same products exported by U.S. producers. You will...
  • ‘Conservative’ Writer George Will Smears Billy Graham

    I was profoundly disappointed to learn that National Review had published George Will’s ugly attack on evangelist Billy Graham just days after America’s pastor died. “Billy Graham: Neither Prophet nor Theologian,” the conservative publication’s headline declared. I would expect to read such anti-Christian mockery in the pages of The New York Times and Washington Post, but not National Review. My, how times have changed. “Prophets take adversarial stances toward their times, as did the 20th century’s two greatest religious leaders, the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. and Pope John Paul II. Graham did not. Partly for that reason, his country...

    Will & Grace really hates Vice President Mike Pence, that's nothing new. Usually, though, the show is suggesting that he hates gay people, not that he himself is secrely gay. That seemed to change in the February 1 episode "Staten Island Fairy."

    An audio recording has emerged of the Israeli prime minister’s wife furiously scolding a family publicist over a gossip column she said failed to highlight her professional qualifications. The leak comes amid intense scrutiny in Israel of Sara Netanyahu, who was last year ordered to pay tens of thousands of pounds in damages to two former domestic workers who accused her of bullying. She faces a third lawsuit from an employee who alleged staff were treated like “slaves”.The Israeli site Walla! News published the tape in which Netanyahu, a child psychologist, is heard screaming at an aide who had reportedly...

    resident Trump sent out a tweet today about signing the Martin Luther King Jr. National Historic Park Act: "It was my great honor to sign H.R. 267, the 'Martin Luther King, Jr. National Historical Park Act,' which redesignates the Martin Luther King, Junior, National Historic Site in the State of Georgia as the Martin Luther King, Jr. National Historical Park." Who could have anything bad to say about this? Enter the repulsive Left: The world thanks you, Ruth Ann, for being all-knowing: And a great thanks to the sinister, leftist media -- and the lemmings who follow it -- for...
  • NPR Anchor Uses Misquote to Trump Fan: Are You Backing a Lunatic Who'd Launch Nukes?

    On National Public Radio on Saturday morning, Weekend Edition anchor Scott Simon interviewed Ed Martin, a pro-Trump author and Republican Party man, reveling in the Donald Trump-Steve Bannon feud. Martin said “I'm trying not to be on a side - it's like Mom and Dad had a little bit of a disagreement. I prefer to think that it's going to settle down and they're all in the family here, you know.” So Simon suggested Trump might be a lunatic: SCOTT SIMON: But disagreement - Steve Bannon is quoted as saying -- and to my knowledge this statement has not been...
  • White House: ‘False Claims’ in Megyn Kelly Interview with ‘Politically Motivated’ Trump Accusers

    NBC’s Megyn Kelly featured an interview with three Donald Trump accusers prior to a press conference by Brave New Films, a leftist company releasing a documentary of the accusers. A White House spokesperson said: These false claims, totally disputed in most cases by eyewitness accounts, were addressed at length during last year’s campaign, and the American people voiced their judgment by delivering a decisive victory. The timing and absurdity of these false claims speaks volumes and the publicity tour that has begun only further confirms the political motives behind them.

    Women who have publicly accused President Trump of sexual misconduct will call for Congress to investigate the allegations at a press conference on Monday. The women will unite for the first time to demand the probe and share details of their allegations against Trump, according to a press release. The conference is being hosted by Brave New Films, a documentary group that released a film about the allegations against Trump in November. More than a dozen women came forward with allegations of sexual misconduct against Trump during his presidential campaign. Trump has denied the reports and the White House has said its...

    Roy Moore has regained his footing in the Alabama special election for a seat in the U.S. Senate, according to a poll released Wednesday that showed the Republican has taken back the lead from Democrat Doug Jones. Mr. Moore holds a 48 to 43 percent margin over Mr. Jones in a JMC Analytics and Polling survey after trailing the Democrat by a 42 to 46 percent margin earlier this month.

    The corrupt D.C. swamp has controlled this country for decades. Then along came Donald Trump. Those in the swamp desperately tried to fix the election, to guarantee Hillary’s victory. They rigged the Democrat presidential primary for her. Then the mainstream media tried to rig the general election — featuring nothing but negative news about Trump. The Silicon Valley social media gurus tried to censor anything positive about Trump on Twitter and Facebook. The FBI tried its best to keep Hillary from being indicted — covering up her Uranium One scandal and finding her innocent of violations of national security in...

    Mitch McConnell (R-KY) and several other Republican senators said on Thursday if allegations are true, Alabama Senate Republican candidate Judge Roy Moore should drop out of the race. The Washington Post released a story on Thursday alledging that Moore initiated a sexual encounter with a 14-year-old girl when he was 32, as well as other cases of sexual misconduct. Moore denied the allegations. “These allegations are completely false and are a desperate political attack by the National Democrat Party and the Washington Post on this campaign,” Moore said. Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said, “If these allegations are true, he must...

    [FULL TITLE] D.C. Swamp’s Last Gasp: Fake News WaPo Colludes With GOP Establishment in Last Minute Smear of Roy Moore Several leading entrenched GOP establishment figures rushed to the microphones on Thursday to call for Ten Commandments Judge Roy Moore to step down from his Alabama U.S. Senate campaign after the left-wing fake news Washington Post — which endorsed Moore’s Democrat Primary — concocted a last-minute hit piece intended to take out the principled Christian constitutional conservative. The WaPo hatchet job, conveniently produced a month before the Alabama Senate election on December 12, wants us to believe that Moore, 70,...

    ANN ARBOR, MI -- A Washtenaw County judge is weighing whether to seal court records in a lawsuit filed by conservative pundit Debbie Schlussel against the Ann Arbor Police Department. Schlussel's lawsuit alleges the department is improperly suppressing the name of a Muslim woman who falsely reported a hate crime in November. Schlussel attempted to get the name via a Freedom of Information Act request, but it was redacted -- or blotted out -- by the city attorney's Office, which cited privacy and medical concerns. Assistant City Attorney Thomas Kent subsequently filed a motion to seal the case so the...

    What a shock it truly wasn't that one of the most warped recent examples of Trump Derangement Syndrome would be heard on a cable show hosted by Al Sharpton. Former Chicago Bulls player Craig Hodges, author of "Long Shot: The Struggles and Triumphs of an NBA Freedom Fighter," appeared on Sharpton's PoliticsNation yesterday to talk about President Trump's criticism of NFL athletes for kneeling during the national anthem to protest perceived racial injustices. What Hodges said about the president was over the top even by the inelegant standards of MSNBC's weekend programming: SHARPTON: "Let me show you this tweet he...

    Attorney General Jeff Sessions defied the establishment media’s attempt to smear President Donald Trump using an article on the Daily Stormer neo-Nazi website. During an interview with Sessions, Craig Melvin, host of NBC’s Today, read verbatim from a Daily Stormer article praising Trump for not condemning them by name during his statement on Saturday about the violent events in Charlottesville, Virginia. “Isn’t that proof that the president didn’t stand up sufficiently to white supremacy on Saturday?” Melvin asked. “They are simply attempting to legitimate themselves in any way possible,” Sessions replied. “They are about to find out that we’re coming...

    Sharyl Attkisson will be the guest discussing her book "Smear" on C-Span2's "After Words" tonight at 9 and midnight EDT. Attkisson was a journalist for CBS who resigned a few years back because she felt her reporting was being micromanaged and shaped by management there. Her book looks at how journalists use false and misleading information to push their agendas instead of reporting the story. Attkisson does not define a "smear" as necessarily being untrue, but rather as being a story which is amplified beyond it's normal importance and having an underlying political or financial agenda which is not revealed...

    ABC News’ Pete Madden and Erin Galloway smeared Christians who believe the Bill of Rights secures religious liberty as a “hate group,” in an article this week headlined, “Jeff Sessions addresses ‘anti-LGBT hate group,’ but DOJ won’t release his remarks.” The lede of the story made it clear this was not just the work of a rogue headline writer but the failure of the reporters themselves: Attorney General Jeff Sessions delivered a speech to an alleged hate group at an event closed to reporters on Tuesday night, but the Department of Justice is refusing to reveal what he said. First,...

    On Joy Reid’s MSNBC show this morning, guest Tamara Holder—who Reid, ironically, billed as an “equal rights attorney and advocate”—mocked the women in Donald Trump’s life. Holder was upset that they had failed to condemn the president over his tweets directed at Mika Brzezinski and Joe Scarborough. Said Holder: “I think the women in Donald Trump’s life probably have smaller minds than his small hands . . . he has continued to surround himself, Donald Trump, with very, very, weak-minded women, who are afraid of him.” View the video here.
